Quality is never an accident - John Ruskin

Over the years, we have built up a wealth of knowledge and awareness of the needs of the artist, hobbyist, beginner and student of creative studies. Our staff are all practising artists, illustrators, graphic designers or students of art and design. Between us we work hard to supply our customers with exactly what they need, at a price they want to pay. We understand that everyone has different needs and different budgets. Our product ranges reflect this and we are proud to be Oxfordshire's No 1 Art and Craft Shop. Broad Canvas is more than just an art and craft supplies shop however. We are working hard to support your creativity whenever and however we can. We provide you with the materials, technical advice, project ideas and support required for you to create and enjoy your creativity. You can rely on us; an independent art and craft supplies shop with years of experience and a wealth of knowledge.
